Vision & Strategy
The Mechanical Engineering and Resource Sustainability Center (MEtRICs) mission is to create scientific knowledge and provide technical solutions for a cleaner, safer and sustainable world.
We aim to have an impact in our society and contribute to the social and economic benefits that come hand in hand with a knowledge based economy. Although fundamental research is considered, in all activities, MEtRICs is mainly oriented for applied research. We believe that a few criteria should be met in order to fulfill our mission: i) research excellence; ii) multidisciplinary approach; iii) proximity with the economic dynamics of the region; iv) dissemination; v) advanced training; vi) close collaborations with both industry and community.
